Who plays a Strat? Probably everyone who's ever picked up an electric guitar.

HISTORY
Since its introduction by inventor Leo Fender on May 15, 1954, the basic design has remained unchanged, though it has certainly inspired many variations offered by Fender and other companies.

The Stratocaster was Leo Fender’s third offering in his line of solid-body electric instruments. The Strat followed the Telecaster Guitar and Precision Bass, which were introduced as prototypes in 1951 and brought to market the following year. Both instruments garnered success with musicians and Fender aimed to improve on his original designs as well as to expand his line with new models. He listened to comments from musicians and incorporated their ideas into the new instrument he had on the drawing board, which was to become the Stratocaster.

The name “Stratocaster” came from Fender’s business partner, Don Randall. It was intended to be reminiscent of aircraft technology, and reflect forward thinking and modern design. Indeed, it was — and still is — quite an innovative design!

Key differences between the Stratocaster and Telecaster:
The Stratocaster’s contoured cutaway body style was intended to improve balance and make the instrument more comfortable to play, as well as to allow greater access to the higher registers of the neck. A third (middle position) pickup was added to provide more tonal variations than the Telecaster could offer with only neck and bridge position pickups. But one of the most important new features of the Stratocaster was the tremolo bridge, which allowed players to bend strings in the same way a pedal steel player would.

Mass produced on machines for peanuts then sold to gullible fools for way over the odds. That is Fender. Selling snow to Eskimos for 70 years.

The strata caster really was the first rock ‘n’ roll guitar well maybe not , chuck Barry really actually had the first electric guitar and I’m not sure what his guitar was I know was a Gibson. But who doesn’t love a Stratocaster I love him and I also love Gibsons and I also love Ibanez

To all the commenters below saying that the wood makes no difference to the sound, I say the following:
1. An acoustic guitar unarguably gets its sound from the types of wood used, how they are shaped and joined and braced, etc.
2. A semi-acoustic guitar unarguably gets SOME of its sound from its timber construction and some from its pickups.
3. A solid body guitar MUST THEREFORE get a little bit of its overtones from its timber resonances, paired with the majority of sound determined by its pickups, their placement and their wiring/switching.
4. SOME players and SOME listeners are sensitive enough to detect subtle timber tones from different solid bodies, and SOME aren't. Just as many players can hear differences in string brands ... and SOME can't. If YOU KNOW it to be true, good on ya. But if ya don't know its true for yourself, then don't say it can't be true for others.

here's some actual truth for you that's not some "my ear is just better" bogus and assumptions: the sound comes from literally anything but the fucking material of the body, and anyone arguing against that has no definitive proof to stump those facts.

States that pickups are attached to the body then soldered together. 10 seconds later women holds up pickguard assembly with electronics attached.

Amazing that people who should know better still think the wood and the paint affect a sound generated by the disturbance of a magnetic field.

I have a Strat, wish I had a Les Paul, watching this made me hungry, I like cheese.

Terry Kath (Chicago) used one before switching to his trademark "Pignose" Telecaster in 1973.

The color can affect the sound too. I find that white Strats would create 'lighter' tones, whereas a black Strat would yield darker tones. So yeah it is very important to pick your colors!

Who’s this nimrod explaining the guitar history? lol

My toughest decision is to decide which one of the twenty-odd Fenders I'll play on Saturday night.

@The Lions Share How would you pronounce it from your neck of the woods?

2 weeks ago

@80sGuy wrong

2 weeks ago

Because that's the correct pronunciation. It is like asking people why they couldn't say the world 'island' correctly and why the silent 's', it is no different than pronouncing another word like 'chaos' without making it sound Chinese.

There are many, many electric guitars - but there's nothing quite like a Strat.
